Walking in the hills can be an exciting but daunting prospect if you have never done it before. To stay safe and enjoy your time on the hill you will benefit from some basic skills and expertise to support you on your way. The Hill Skills courses are designed to give you just that. They aim to equip you with basic knowledge and safety skills, increasing your confidence to participate in more hill walking in your own time. 

The Hill Skills course is your key to getting started in countryside and moorland walking. There is no experience of hill walking required to attend a Hill Skills course because the content of the course is aimed at beginners. If you do have some experience of hill walking but aren’t confident about planning walks, navigating and understanding the equipment required, then the Hill Skills course is an ideal way to learn. 

What does the Hill Skills course cover?
Planning – how to successfully plan a hill walk in the UK or Ireland.
Walking skills – what things should you consider while out walking and what can make life easier (pace, nutrition, movement skills etc.).
Clothing and equipment – being suitably dressed and equipped can make the difference between a great day out and a complete disaster.
Weather – how it affects the hills and your day out.
Navigation in the hills – everything from selecting a compass to navigation strategies and an intro to GPS.
Environmental knowledge – how to minimise your impact on the hill and information on good practice and useful organisations.
Hazards and emergency procedures in the hills – how to respond to any hazards you encounter and what to do in an emergency.

The Hill Skills courses are nationally accredited and developed by Mountain Training. Our Hills Skills courses take place in the stunning Exmoor National Park and is delivered by our experienced and professional training team. We endeavor to provide a supportive environment to allow you to get the most from the training course.
